BIL UnConference Vancouver: Video!

March 20, 2014


Featuring Amanda Palmer and BIL UnConference founder Michael Cummings, onstage at the Vogue last night! Hopefully the video will work. I hate Facebook video, but what can you do? What can you do? Register, volunteer, and participate in BIL this weekend. As an Unconference, it is what we make it. I for one plan to […]

Writing Effective Spam

February 24, 2011


Normally, we’re all anti-spam around these parts, and recommend that you be as well. There’s little I hate in the world more than a TweetDeck full of auto-DMs, particularly from people who should know better. Social media “gurus” who autoDM should, in my opinion, have their Jesus Phones taken away and should only be allowed […]

The evolution of multimedia

February 25, 2010


Yeah, and another thing…remember when they used to tell you that someday computers would be as easy to use as telephones? Well, it’s true. It’s happened. Because telephones are now as bloody complicated as computers.

The Living Society Art Show and Flashmob: Call for Artists and Participants

The Deets: On Saturday January 30th we are […]

R U Fucking Kidding Me? A new theme for a new age of romance

August 17, 2009


Of all the songs in all the world, I’d have to say that this song has the best odds of being posted to the most Facebook pages. Romance has truly entered a new era, one where pickups are done via text and dumpings by a change in one’s Facebook status (“what does he mean he’s […]

The Facebook Song

June 10, 2009


Those of you who are regular readers will be aware of our fondness for certain denizens of YouTube, among them Momo, Brian Atene, and our old pals, the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre.
